The US copyright law (Which my work falls under) states: The 1976 Copyright Act provides that copyright protection "subsists ... in original works of authorship fixed in any tangible medium of expression, now known or later developed" (17 U.S.C.A. 102(a)). Thus, virtually any form of fixed recording is protected, no matter how new the technology.
